For the Love of Food and Wine

gourmet-food-wine-expo-torontoThis weekend I had the opportunity of attending The Gourmet Food and Wine Show for the very first time and it was quiet the experience! Wow, was there a lot of option! Not only were there endless tables of wines from about every region around the world, with cuisines from every culture, but there was also beer, cider, entertainment and more! As their 21st year, The Metro Toronto Convention Centre knew how to set this show up and there was definitely no messing around! It was busy, but it just made it all the most exciting to join in on the fun!




I went with a friend who also works in the wine industry so we pretty excited to indulge in the different offerings this years Expo had to offer. I think one of our favourite stops was the Germany station where a good friend working the table led us through an incredible line up of Rieslings (a Kabinett and Auslese included!), a Spatlese Gewürztraminer and a Spatburgunder (German for Pinot Noir) All were quite lovely, but the Gewürztraminer and the Kabinett Riesling were my favourite.




Another exciting stop was the Granville Island Brewery table! My friend, who is actually from BC was even more excited than I was seeing this company as it brought back memories for both of us! We both enjoyed their Winter Ale!

Some of the entertainment for the consisted of a live band, live classes you can take a break and join and the photo booths available. We definitely took advantage of those!

I cant forget to mention the food! There were cuisines from every country and pairings for just about every beverage offered! Some of the food and restaurants that exhibited I have listed below:

Holy Cannoli

Rock Lobster

Switzerland Cheese

Three Sisters Kitchen

Brassaii Restaurant and Lounge

Dairy Farmers of Canada

Original Kettlecorn

I could keep going, but this blog would never end!

It was a crazy, amazing experience and I am so fortunate I was able to attend this year! I would recommend to anyone to attend the years to come!
